Part 2 of a 2-Part Series: Three Things Uncommon People Do
Last time, we discovered that there are three things common people do: they accept, they settle, and they stop. Here are three things that make people Uncommon.
Uncommon people question. They don’t just accept the status quo or the way they have been told things should be. They’re not afraid to ask the hard-hitting questions, beginning with their own motives and attitudes.
They don’t just ask if they are good enough—they ask if they are the best they can be.
They don’t just ask if the results are good enough—they ask if the results are the best they can be.
Uncommon people stretch. They—and the results they achieve—become better, stronger, and faster because they reach out for more than what is commonly accepted by and settled on by others. (Did you see what I did there?) They go beyond what’s been done before and what’s been already accomplished, and create a new normal. Records are broken and new foundations are established. They go the extra mile.
But they don’t stop there. Uncommon people continue. They continue to question and stretch. They push on further. Of course, there are times when they rest—and rest is good—but they never stop. To uncommon people, rest is an opportunity to recharge, reenergize, and get ready for more. Their vision always outdistances their current reality, which makes stopping not an option.
How can you implement these qualities in your own life or business to make it uncommon? What do you need to question? Where do you need to stretch? What do you need to continue? How can you be uncommon?
